Manchester Airport cancels dozens of flights due to fuel supply problems

 Although the issue has been resolved, passengers are still advised to check the status of their flight with their airline.



Fuel supply problems that saw dozens of flights at Manchester Airport cancelled and left thousands of passengers stranded have been resolved.

There were 69 cancellations - 37 arrivals and 32 departures - after the issue reared its head on Sunday afternoon, with a number of other flights hit by delays.
Engineers put the problem down to a power issue, which meant its impact was felt into the early hours as some travellers were forced to pursue alternative arrangements to reach their destinations.


Others managed to make progress in their bid to reach their holiday destination, but only by diverging significantly from their original travel plans.

One traveller, Matt Kirkham, tweeted: "Thanks to the chaos at @manairport we've ended up at Liverpool John Lennon at 2am on a Monday morning to fly to Faro."
